Photography & Digital Mixed Media


They say Space is the final frontier but the mind and imagination can take you further than the depths of space ...



Space has always been so fascinating to me and has influenced my art throughout the years. My inspiration started in Crete Greece, when I saw a street artist making a beautiful space scene using spray-paint. The different techniques the artist used surprised me. When he finished he turned his spray can upside down and made a comet, the spark to my inspiration. When I returned back to my home in Pacific Grove CA, I spent hours upon hours trying to re-create the Greek artist’s style and I eventually succeeded. That wasn't enough, I wanted to do more, so I took more and more art classes and eventually got into AP art where my teacher, Mr. Kelly, pushed me to try new techniques and mediums. I am grateful Mr. Kelly did so because I would have never found my niche. My art is a mixture of the photographs gathered from friends and family and my different adventures along with lots of time on a tablet with Photoshop. Once I manifest my idea on the computer I print it out on canvas or watercolor paper and add acrylics with gloss varnish. This saturates and brings the highlights out allowing me to control the focus of each art piece. My art is always evolving and I am working on some new techniques right now; I hope to share my results with you soon!
